Shrimp Salad with a Spicy Garlic Chili Dressing

When I served this shrimp salad two days in a row and there’s wasn’t a complaint to be heard about leftovers, then that’s a meal I’ll serve again.

This salad recipe was incredibly easy to pull together thanks to a carton of lemony yogurt and a container of pre-cooked salad shrimp.

We served our salad on a bed of fresh-from-the-garden red lettuce leaves with a handful of walnuts and celery tossed in for crunch.

Our shrimpy creation held up so well that we turned it into an appetizer scooped onto garlic toasts. You just can’t beat those double-duty meals.

Happy, healthy cooking!

    I love that this delectable salad is so simple to throw together! I’d have no qualms about eating it day after day after day!!!

    Kristi, Shrimp Salad is always a welcome dish at our house too – but I never made a version that contains celery and walnuts – those are healthy additions to any salad and I sure that they taste interesting together with shrimp. I really like the picture with the garlic toast, looks wonderfully summery.

    Nice dish! We’re heavy into main course salads at the moment. It’s so nice to have precooked shrimp in the freezer – something I’m rarely without. Good recipe – thanks.

    I could not agree with you more. I would go so far as considering it a “need” to have meals planned that can serve double duty for me. It keeps me out of the kitchen as well as keeping us fed and happy!
